Episode Summary

EDIT
Semi Final 1
AIRED:
Fight 1: Chaos 2 vs. Steg 2 Both teams had made it to the Grand Final last year, but this time, only one would be able to move on. As the fight started, the two mighty flippers moved closely to each other before Chaos 2 came in and gave Steg 2 a nice flip! Steg 2 was able to self-right and then Steg 2 flipped Chaos 2 over! Chaos 2 also self-righted. Chaos 2 then flipped Steg 2 over again. This time, Steg 2 ended up getting stuck on its side. Chaos 2 celebrated as the House Robots placed Steg 2 onto the Floor Flipper and sent it flying. Steg 2 was now extinct! Fight 2: Wheely Big Cheese vs. Tornado Tornado began to push Wheely Big Cheese a bit but then Wheely Big Cheese's wheely big flipper activated and Tornado was sent flying through the air nearly out of the arena! Tornado recovered and slammed Wheely Big Chesse into Matilda's CPZ, where Matilda lifted both robots up. Tornado then slammed Wheely Big Cheese into the wall with so much force that one of Wheely Big Cheese's wheels break! Tornado then pushed the grilled cheese onto the flame pit, but then started to smoke as well as time ran out. Tornado won the judges' decision. Fight 3: Thermidor II vs. Pussycat Thermidor II flipped Pussycat into the air, but Pussycat was able to land on its wheels. Thermidor then shoved Pussycat into the flames and then into Refbot. Pussycat was able to eventually get its blade working. Thermidor's fragile shell started to crack and its exposed tires also started to fall apart. The tables started to turn with Pussycat now on the offensive as time ran out. Pussycat won the fight on damage. Fight 4: Firestorm II vs. Dominator II Firestorm immediately drove under Dominator II and flipped it onto its side, but Dominator II was able to use its axe to self-right. Dominator then put the axe into Firestorm's flipper. Firestorm then continued to ram Dominator around the arena. Dominator axed Firestorm's flipper again and then Firestorm then rammed Dominator into the arena wall. Refbot then came in to seperate the two robots as time ran out. Dominator II was given the win, although some people thought that Firestorm II should have been given the win. Semi-Final 1: Chaos 2 vs. Tornado Chaos 2 immediately moved in and flipped Tornado over before getting roasted by Sgt. Bash in the corner. Chaos 2 then drove under Tornado again and flipped it 360 degrees before driving it into the arena wall and flipping it out of the arena, shaking some studio equipment as the Tornado was silenced. Chaos 2 would then go through to the Grand Final once again. Semi-Final 2: Pussycat vs. Dominator II Dominator II's "painted" titanium armor was much too thick for Pussycat's blade to cut through, so Pussycat went for Dominator's Achelilles Heel: Its tires. Dominator II was able to push Pussycat into Matilda's CPZ, but Pussycat was able to get out. Dominator tries to hit Pussycat with the axe, but Pussycat sawed into Dominator's back end. Refbot broke both robots up as Cease was called. Pussycat won and went through to the Grand Final along with Chaos 2.moreless
